Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19702445A1] A process is disclosed for manufacturing flat bearing shells. A strip of material (2) is cut into bearing shell sections (26), these sections are bent into a semicircular shape, and the outer and inner faces (88, 58), as well as parting surfaces (52), of the thus obtained bearing shells are calibrated. For the outer sides and parting surfaces to be calibrated by a more simple and economic process, the outer side (8) and parting surfaces (52) of the bearing shell sections (26) bent into a semicircular shape are calibrated by upsetting the parting surfaces (52) in a compression moulding die (40). Also disclosed is a compression moulding die for carrying out the process.
